Builders FirstSource Acquires Empire Truss

Acquisition expands Builders FirstSources truss business reach in Texas.

Building materials company Builders FirstSource Inc. (Nasdaq: BLDR), Dallas, TX, a supplier and manufacturer of structural and related building products for residential new construction in the U.S., has acquired Empire Truss, Huntsville, TX, its fifth acquisition of 2014. Terms were not disclosed.

Empire manufactures roof trusses and floor trusses, and distributes engineered wood products. The company, which operates locations in Huntsville, TX, and Ferris, TX, had estimated fiscal 2014 sales of $11 million.

"The acquisition of Empire provides us a well-respected truss business with operations serving the Texas markets," said Builders FirstSource's President and COO Chad Crow. "This transaction also gives us the ability to leverage the contributions of other recent Texas acquisitions, by providing complementary product offerings, additional manufacturing capacity and a more diversified customer base."
